Welcome Back To Wipeout! Except this is my first encounter with the game and as I’ve looked at reviews of the older versions it looks like I’m lucky I started out with Wipeout 3. Of course, being in the tech field, I understand that it takes a while to get the programming with a new technology like the Kinect right. I’ve noticed with a lot of newer games they are a lot more forgiving than the older ones. It’s getting easier and easier for my kids to play, yes they are getting older and more coordinated but I can also see the forgiveness. If the kids can play it without getting frustrated then I’m satisfied and I’m satisfied with Wipeout 3. I love that this game’s activity level is active. It rains so much here it’s nice to have something for the kids to do indoors that keeps them jumping and moving.
You can just use your arms as you would as if you were running. To jump, you lift your hands up in the air. You can tilt your body backwards or forwards to adjust or when you’re in the air to go further or shorter. With the current Wipeout, you have 3 attempts to master that obstacle. At that point, if you failed the game would advance you past that obstacle.
